Dumbanan.

OS Ref: NJ 504408   RCAHMS No: NJ54SW 8

A part of the Deanery of Strathbogie, Dumbanan was, from 1224, a prebend of the Cathedral of Bishop Bricius. This prebend was composed of the churches of Dumbanan and Kynnor (Kinnoir). It is possible that the prebendal revenues were assigned for a time c.1469 to the Sacristan of the cathedral.

These two churches were the 'local' parish churches, Huntly at that time being but a hamlet (called Tirriesoul or Tilliesoul).

 

The site of the old church looking north-east to Ordiquhill.

There is supposed to have been a chapel at Annetswell. The name certainly indicates an early foundation but no remains are to be found since the site is now a sprawling scrap-yard! It is more likely that any chapel here was associated with the church of Kynnor.
